Ethereum— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 30, 2019
The power of one tweet
The one-world tweet, which simply states ‘Ethereum’, immediately went viral with over 45k likes at the time of writing. It also inevitability attracted the attention of major crypto personalities, including Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin.
Buterin, after seeing Musk mentioning his coin, used this as an opportunity to invite him to the Ethereum even called Devcon that will take place in October. Musk’s reply to the mastermind behind Ethereum wasn’t devoid of obscurity.
You should come to our Devcon in October :)— Vitalik Non-giver of Ether (@VitalikButerin) April 30, 2019
Stop giving away free ETH! 🤣🤣— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 30, 2019
Tron CEO Justin Sun couldn’t resist the temptation to shoehorn Tron and BitTorrent in the Twitter thread. Meanwhile, Bitcoin advocate Anthony Pompliano invited the famed entrepreneur.
What about Dogecoin?
As reported earlier by U.Today, Musk earlier named Dogecoin his favorite cryptocurrency. His embracement of the first ‘meme coin’, which also happens to be one of the oldest cryptocurrencies on the market, came after the Dogecoin community chose him to be the new CEO as an April Fools’ joke. However, Musk didn’t give a shutout to DOGE this time around.
Notably, this not the first time when Musk mentions Ether. Back in August, after being attacked by cryptocurrency spam bots, Musk claimed that he wanted Ethereum even if it was a scam.
